Reading 101 ~ Phonemic Awareness ~ Part 4 ~ Older Students

 

What About Older Students?PA Part4

This question was asked several times last week.  Older students who lack a firm grasp of phonemic awareness need to be taught these important skills or have a thorough review of them until mastery is achieved.  The same things you teach to a young child can be taught to an older child as well.  Remember, it’s all done orally, so there are no “kindergarten” texts or worksheets to make them feel badly for having to review or learn these foundational skills.  I mentioned in the introduction that phonemic awareness activities are a big part of an intervention plan for those diagnosed with an auditory processing disorder. These activities are for any age. Though maximum benefit is achieved by learning these skills early on, they will help a struggling reader at any age.

The next post in this series will address how to assess your child’s phonemic awareness skills. Stay tuned! 

Happy Reading! Kay

Phonemic Awareness & Phonics Activity for Early Learners

Phonemic Awareness & Phonics activity

 

Just saw this on All About Learning Press! Fabulous activity for little ones to introduce them to letters and sounds. I thought since this goes great with the blog series I am doing, I would post it for you to see. I am affiliated with All About Learning Press because I use and recommend their curricula, so if my “tech-challenged” brain did this correctly, this is an affiliate link. 🙂 However, this is a free download. Even better!
